parkrun raises your mud pressure!

1 GoodGymer made their way to help the parkrun - Cardiff juniors in Cardiff.

Today Flo was out and about at Cardiff Junior parkrun, a free weekly event on Sunday's for 4-14 year olds (and part of the wider parkrun family).

Wales, November rain and weather warnings can only mean one thing - there will be mud, mud, mud!

In fact, the mud was so much that the finishing funnel had to moved from it's usual position, slightly to the side, at a spot in the park which was less muddy. And there wasn't just mud to deal with, there was also huge, powerful winds, which threatened to take the whole funnel tape and poles away with it. This meant Flo later added 'human pole' to her responsibilities today, though it's unlikely to take off as a regular parkrun volunteer role.
